At noon the second chick in the nest was hatched.

In the video we can see male Marko at the left  and mother Miina feeding the chicks. It seems as if family life in the nest is still a little strange to Miina and she must listen to her maternal instincts, or maybe this is her first clutch? From what do we conclude this: yesterday she tried to feed a chick still in the egg shell … But surely she will adapt to the circumstances.

Pärast koorumist kõrvaldati munakoor pesast, ülesanne on täidetud ja teravad servad võivad kotkapoegi lihtsalt vigastada

After the hatching the egg shells were removed from the nest, the purpose has been filled and the sharp edges might injure a chick
